The Women of the New Testament ministry explores the diverse roles of women in the early church by studying and discussing the Old Testament, the New Testament, other writings and practices of the early church, and scholarly commentary on these sources. In the light of this process, the group–women and men–pray to discern the roles to which women (and men) are being called in the contemporary church. Our meetings take place on the third Tuesday of each month.

The August 15, 2017 gathering begins at 6:45 p.m. The meeting takes place from 7 – 8:30 p.m. in the Parish Office Conference Room at 110 E. Madison Street. Our committee chair is Melody Gordon-Healy, mghealy@att.net.

We are moving through the book, Women in Church History by Joanne Turpin. This is relatively light reading and we believe it to be suitable for summer. This book is printed by St. Anthony Messenger Press. Each person must get their own book. Please read the intro and first four chapters for discussion. The chapters are short!
